THE STORY:

Farming Hope is the soup kitchen turned on its head – we train and hire the people who usually stand in line, to grow and harvest food from San Francisco Bay Area gardens and to cook and feed others at our farmers’ market stand and community dinners. We are a nonprofit that aims to serve as a bridge out of homelessness.


We operate as a social enterprise, generating revenue through food sales in order to hire transitionally homeless neighbors. We also rely on donations to keep employing more neighbors in need.


The Problem: Unhoused and marginally housed individuals lack sustainable self-development opportunities in the Bay Area. Immediate resources are available, but a sense of community and opportunities for long-term growth are lacking.


How You Can Help Right Now: If you are able to donate $50, $75 or $200 today, it'll help us with purchasing gardening supplies, sponsoring meals for our homeless neighbors and printing informational materials for our market stand and pop-up dinners. If we can raise $9,000 during this campaign, this month we can start to:


+ Hire our June San Francisco employee cohort

+ Build our rooftop garden at Hospitality House 

+ Hire 1 employee for our farmers' market stand


We need all the help we can get to keep our nonprofit afloat. Thank you for your support!


*We are a charitable organization, a project of Bountiful Churchyards, which is a locally-based, secular nonprofit and a registered 501(c)(3). Our EIN is 46-3074646.
